How To Book Train Ticket Direct From The Google Pay App

Google Pay, the UPI-based payments app, rolls out the feature of booking train tickets directly in India. By partnering Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), Google Pay(earlier known as Google Tez) enables its users to pay, search, book and cancel train tickets.

This feature was already accessible by some users over the last few days but now it is available to all the Android and iOS users in the country.

Ambarish Kenghe, Director and Product Management, Google Pay said,

The IRCTC ticket booking support in Google Pay will allow the users to search, book, and cancel train tickets in the app itself. The app users will also be able to check seat availability, journey duration, and travel times in Google Pay.

To access the ticket booking feature, the users will need an IRCTC account, but they will not be charged anything extra for booking tickets via Google Pay. The implementation seems to be similar to what the likes of Paytm and Cleartrip offer.

He further added,

The users will need an IRCTC account to access the ticket booking feature. There will be no additional charge for booking through Google Pay. Its implementation is quite similar to the likes of Paytm and Cleartrip.
